Shift Problems When wet outside

Hi I am looking for some info on a transmission shift problem that has cropped up the past two weeks on my 91 Cougar with a 3.8.

Whenever it is WET OUT the tranny starts hesitating shifting between gears....last night we had a little rain and once again today the tranny will not shift gears...getting a shutter when it should be shifting ( 20-25 mph). Two other times in the past two weeks when it is raining out the same thing happens.

Once it drys out the tranny will shift normally...... I am thinking maybe some sensor or wire getting wet might be causing this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Th3 transmission in the 91 has very little electronics I would suggest a bad plug wire is giving you a funny feel you may think is the transmission.
